Committee stage amendments to Finance Bill 2020

Nov 16, 2020

The Minister for Finance Paschal Donohoe tabled several amendments to Finance Bill 2020.  Disappointingly, the Minister has not addressed the key issues requiring amendment as set out by the CCAB-I.  The changes requiring urgent attention in the Bill relate to the extension of the Covid Restrictions Support Scheme to all businesses impacted by the Government’s health and safety restrictions, reversing the measures which deny taxpayers interest under the tax appeals system and revision of transfer pricing measures which will negatively impact the SME sector. 

The CCAB-I will write to the Minister again given the importance of these issues for Irish taxpayers.   For full details of the Committee Stage amendments see the Oireachtas website.
